    I tend to be more aggressive than most when it comes to ending support for outdated browsers. As I mentioned in this article about ending IE6 support 5 years ago, supporting old browsers is not worth additional cost and drag on innovation. I am happy whenever I see a big web property end support for an old browser, but I was absolutely thrilled to see that starting on January 12th 2016, Microsoft will only support the most current version of Internet Explorer available for their supported operating systems. This means: IE8 and lower will be practically dead. It will only be supported on some…

    Most business owners now understand analytics is an essential tool that can highlight efficiency and opportunities for innovation.

  • Does the average user prefer multi-factor authentication to expiring passwords?

    1 Apr 2015 | 10:38 am
    I was doing some anecdotal research about password security preferences and I was surprised to find that most of the people I talked to favored two-factor authentication (using Google Authenticator) over expiring passwords. My survey pool consisted of project managers who I think are pretty typical enterprise software users. Around half of them had not seen two-factor authentication until I showed it to them. The general attitude was that anything is better than expiring passwords — an opinion that I agree with. Are my colleagues unusually geeky or is this a trend that other people are…
  • Double International Snapshot

    23 Mar 2015 | 8:32 am
    Last year I wrote a post about two deployment patterns to prevent source language bleed through when using a transaction proxy. If you don't want to click through on the link, source language bleed through can happen when a visitor views a page with text that has not been translated yet. Most translation proxies have an option to use machine translations for untranslated text but this is not always desirable. In our experience, the "International Snapshot" pattern works very well as long as the customer is willing to freeze their content while the site is being translated. Without a content…
  • The Three Worlds of a Product Manager

    16 Mar 2015 | 6:25 am
    One of the most challenging aspects of being a product manager is that your mind needs to simultaneously exist in three worlds — three different realities: the present, the near future, and the distant future. Let's go through them one-by-one.The Present This is the state of the product that everyone is using right now. To the product manager, however, the present feels like the past because it contains features and characteristics that he thought through long ago. The most relevant function of the present is as a tool to learn more about users and decide what the near future should…
  • Drupal is to web development as Powerpoint is to design

    24 Feb 2015 | 4:21 pm
    I was recently talking with a friend about how hard it is to find a good Drupal developer. While Drupal is the second-most widely used CMS, finding developers who know how to work with it properly is really challenging. I think there are three reasons for this. Drupal is so ubiquitous that most PHP developers have had at least some level of exposure to it. You can get a lot done in Drupal without knowing what you are doing. Most of the people hiring Drupal developers are not able to evaluate the quality of the work.In thinking about this, an analogy came to mind:Drupal is to web development…

  • The top 4 ways CFOs are maximizing ROI with AP automation

    Katie Alberti
    24 Apr 2015 | 8:20 am
    Ask finance executives their thoughts on Accounts Payable and they’ll likely give you the same answer – it’s the cost of doing business. But tech-savvy CFOs realize the value AP automation solutions bring to this critical business function. While AP may not be the focus of a CFO’s day-to-day activities, taking advantage of AP automation can turn this department from a cost of doing business into a revenue generator. During his latest webinar, “The top 4 things savvy CFOs do to maximize ROI from AP automation,” Henry Ijams, managing director at PayStream Advisors, explained why…

    Whether you’re a fan of Las Vegas or not, you can’t argue with Steve Wynn when he said, “Human resources isn’t a thing we do. It’s the thing that runs our business.” Credit unions everywhere are relying on evolving technology to attract and maintain members. But what is your credit union doing to empower human resources (HR) –the backbone of your organization? The goal of every HR department is to hire and retain the best candidates.

  • Wrapping up #HIMSS15: Closing keynotes focus on affordable, effective care

    Kate Barney
    20 Apr 2015 | 11:42 am
    Former President George W. Bush started the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health IT back in 2004. He was also the first president to call for electronic health records. So, I was interested to see what his thoughts were on the current state of health IT during the HIMSS15 keynote address. Although he didn’t delve into the details of health IT the way his copresenter Dr. Karen DeSalvo did, President Bush was entertaining. He was quick to make fun of himself, which immediately helped him win over the crowd of nearly 7,000. What has he been doing since he retired? “I’ve…

Over the years, our records management colleagues have developed some great techniques for making the job a little easier.

  • How to reduce lost files and speed up document retrieval

    Ross Nepean
    26 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    Does your company or department frequently receive “URGENT!” emails to all staff asking where a certain file is located? Have important files or documents gone missing in the last year? These are the classic signs of an inefficient file storage and retrieval system. And if these challenges didn’t provide enough incentive to improve your filing system, a little math will probably provide the final word. Simply add up the average amount of time spent per employee looking for files in a given month, and multiply that by the number of staff. That’s a lot of lost productivity! What would…
  • Best practices for scanning patient records into an EHR

    Ross Nepean
    19 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    The success of an electronic health records (EHR) system implementation is massively dependent on how you handle your existing paper records. Unless these records are scanned and properly abstracted, you’re at risk of running two systems instead of one, and not realizing the ROI from your transition to electronic medical records and your investment in EHR technology. Scanning and abstracting done right To avoid these outcomes, here are several best practices to follow when scanning and abstracting paper patient records. 1.

  • DocType Risk Assessment: the InfoSec Key for Unstructured Content

    27 Apr 2015 | 4:00 am
    In simplest terms, information security involves identifying and protecting information that could somehow damage an organization legally or competitively if it were misused. Achieving those objectives in unstructured content is far easier if the organization first classifies documents by document type and evaluates the types and levels of risk associated with each type. Once that is done there are many ways to protect that information. For structured content in databases or business support systems, sensitive information can often be identified by examining field and table definitions, e.g.,…
  • Disambiguation and Role Determination in "Unstructured" Content

    16 Apr 2015 | 7:26 am
    "Unstructured" content is a term used to describe content stored on file shares, personal computing devices, and content management systems. A major challenge to making effective use of such content is that words can have multiple meanings, and a name can refer to more than one person. Even worse, there can be multiple forms of the same name. Even when there is only one name for a person, that person can have multiple roles in an organization, e.g., as supervisor, employee, United Way volunteer, scientist, inventor, profit center manager, health coverage insured, or a volunteer in a…
  • Document Negation: Disregarding the Known to Find the Unknown

    9 Apr 2015 | 3:53 am
    Negation is a powerful new tool used to identify high-value words or graphical elements in documents, detect patterns across document types, and add a new dimension to Boolean logic. The idea is simple: within clusters of visually-similar documents, the words and graphical elements differentiating one document from another are the ones that don't occur in the same places on all of the documents. Disregarding or dropping off the recurring items leaves only the high-value items. Three examples: Loan Application Files Each document in a loan-application cluster will show what was on the original…

    26 Mar 2015 | 4:43 pm
    Documents in file shares, content management systems, and scanned archives are often described as "unstructured." However, there is typically a high level of structure in and interconnectedness among those documents. This structure and interconnectedness occurs because specific document types contain recurring attributes or data elements and those attributes or data elements are shared with other document types. The relationships can be represented in a matrix with document types shown on the top of the matrix and document attributes or data elements down the left side. In the simplest form,…
